Do you struggle with your motivation?
You have all the best intentions of showing up. But somehow, it doesn’t always happen.
Why the hell is that?
Pop quiz babe!
Don’t worry, it’s an easy one – but let me set the scene first.
Let’s say one of your goals is to attend yoga once a week. You want to do it to help ease your stress and boost your good vibes via a bit of exercise.
You’ve booked in for an eight-week course on Saturday mornings. You’ve paid for it. You’ve brought the yoga pants and mat. You’ve even marked it in red pen on your calendar.
Week one was all new and exciting and you were bursting with motivation. You even made it on week two, slightly less enthused. Then week three hit and it’s cold outside, it’s raining, and you have a great book to read.
Are you more likely to show up to that class if:
a) you told yourself you would – but nobody would know if you didn’t…
b) you joined the class with your friend and you just know she’s not going to shut up about it if you ditch
See? Told you it was an easy one!
Accountability is the key. So, let’s see how accountability helps you show up every time.
Why You Need The Accountability
There’s nothing quite like accountability to get you to quit making excuses and actually show up. Whether it’s making it to your yoga class or by smashing your business goals on time every time with no bullshit – accountability gets that shit done!
And you don’t have to take my word for it. Research has proven that the mere act of sharing your goals with others makes you twice as likely to achieve them.
So imagine how much more kickass and successful you will be when you hook up with a coach who helps you make a plan to reach your goals, tracks and measures your progress with you, checks in with you to keep you on task, cheers you on when you are running out of steam, or gives you a friendly but firm shove when you need it.
There’ll be no stopping you!
I know this because I’ve been there, and I fucking love seeing how much you can achieve when you bring me on board to be your head cheerleader and ass-kicker. Seriously, bring out the pompoms!
How Accountability Helps You Show Up
Why does accountability help us show up? It’s the way we are programmed!
Think about it. When you’re a kid, your parents keep you accountable for doing your chores and your homework. There are concrete consequences for not doing them! All throughout school, you have teachers to make sure you are accountable.
Then you get into the real world. Usually, there is a boss involved. And, you guessed it… you’ve got to get your job done or you will be in trouble.
But when you run your own business, or you are trying to achieve goals in your personal life or side-gig, there’s nothing but crickets…
We all know how easy it is to make excuses for why we didn’t meet that deadline, make that phone call, finish that proposal, or even get out of our PJs today. Avoidance and denial are tough habits to break!
Accountability works. It helps people follow through and stay serious about their goals, which means you’re going to be unstoppable!
